While a lot of politicians can be described as robotic, no one actually thought they may be robots in disguise — until now, that is. Azerbaijani artist Gunduz Aghayev decided to create several illustrations depicting famous world leaders as Transformers. All of them depict their own country somehow. For example, Queen Elizabeth is a double decker bus, while Putin is a heavily armed old-school Lada car.
